Hi! Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We’re grateful that you’re choosing to learn more about us.
We are Daniel and Shubha, and we’ve been together since 2012 and are a writer and film editor, and non-profit worker. We met in New York City and got married in 2015. We have always wanted to adopt a child as a way to grow our family. We would be excited to bring up a child in our neighborhood in Brooklyn – we would love to take them to our community garden and plant vegetables together, read stories (and make up our own), visit the children’s museum around the corner, and just spend time with lots of aunties and uncles.
Above all, we would provide our child with unconditional love, support them in growing into whoever they want to be, and surround the child with a warm and stable home.
We can only imagine the courage and love you are feeling right now to be considering adoption and we truly send you all our best wishes and strength in making the right decision for you and your child, regardless of whether we are a part of it.
